    I would recommend a blend of baking soda and a small amount of dawn dishwashing liquid. Baking soda helps to remove odors from just about anything.

    I have taken baking soda and sprinkled it on outdoor cushions that became musty smellIng. Just let it set a day and vacuumed and repeat. It worked pretty good. Baking soda rocks! Just be patient, it may take a treatment or two. Good luck!

    A bag of charcoal like for your grill.
    I would put in a box the whole bag, cut open top. Leave overnight or as long as you can. Friend who restores old cars gave me this tip. Charcoal absorbs the odors, he used to use coffee but too expensive now
